SPRINGFIELD, Ohio - Bring the entire family to a spellbinding event that will surprise even the most avid circus fan as the world-class acrobats of the New Shanghai Circus take center stage at Wittenberg University's Health, Physical Education and Recreation Center at 4 p.m., Sunday, Feb. 2. The event is free thanks to the Wittenberg Series and the Freeman Foundation grant awarded to the university's premiere East Asian Studies Program.
This unique Asian art form features amazing feats of balance,contortion and flexibility mixed with magic and fun. A review in "The New Yorker" hails this animal-free circus as "electrifying in its intricacy and invention." Filled with daring and dynamic moves, the circus' "glorious outlandishness only increases as the acts continue, making it a two-hour production that manages to keep even young children happy throughout its duration," according to the review.
Members of the circus have also recently performed on "Live with Regis and Kelly" and "Good Morning America," and the circus has toured the world including the United States, Canada, Japan, Singapore, Thailand, Australia, New Zealand, Turkey, Korea, United Arab Emirates, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Belgium, France, Hong Kong, and Taiwan.
Tickets are not required, but admission to the performance is on a first-come first-served basis. For more information, contact the coordinator of the Wittenberg Series, Gwendolyn Scheffel at (937) 327-7918.
